    Summary

    Marinette knows she’s meant to be with Adrien Agreste because their timers say so. But that doesn’t mean she loves him.

    Their shared zeroes blink in unison, but there’s no click that all soulmates are supposed to feel. Their relationship is a learning curve where she forces herself to fall, even though she’s desperately in love with her partner, Chat Noir.

    (Or: the Soulmate Timers say Marinette and Adrien are soulmates, but Marinette isn’t in love with Adrien. It makes sense though: you can’t love half a person. But she doesn’t know that. Neither of them do.)

    Summary

    When Ladybug and Chat Noir were together, dancing across rooftops and kissing under the moonlit sky, Ladybug loved her boyfriend. But when the masks fell and all that was left was Marinette, she hated her boyfriend. She hated the lonesome afternoons, the third wheeling, the way his name wasn't in her contacts...

    She knows their identities are secret for a reason, and she tells herself she'd do anything to protect that— but when Marinette hears Chat Noir's voice coming from the boy sitting behind her in a coffee shop, she can't help but wonder if it's really worth not having him in her life.

    Summary

    “I’m still dangerous, Steve. I sleepwalk. I could slit your throat with a kitchen knife and go back to bed without realising. Just ‘case I’m me now don’t mean I'm always gonna be me. You get that, don’t you?”

    And he should be saying yes. Yes I know you could kill me, could lead all our enemies right to my front door and let them in. Yes I know you aren’t that man I went to war with. But Steve doesn’t say that. With a glance at Sharon, he sits up straighter and squares his shoulders. It’s the look that Sam has taken to calling “Steve’s taking on the world’s burdens” look.

    "We’ll make it work, Buck.”

    AKA that fic where Bucky gets his memories back only to believe he and Steve had been a couple all along.

    Summary

    It cut Bucky to the core and he hated that more than anything. That as much as he could let Steve down, as he could get things wrong, he was still Bucky Barnes enough to care so very much about Steve Rogers.

    “Steve,” Bucky said with a tired sigh, “please not tonight. I can’t do it tonight.”

    “Can’t do what?” Steve asked.

    “I can’t pretend tonight. I can’t be someone I don’t remember how to be, not tonight. Try me again tomorrow. I’ll muster it up, I swear. But tonight, I am so tired, pal.”
